A Setting on Titan
I've got a new setting gestating and maybe some of you can hep me with it; it's set on Titan and more than one of you are quite good at figuring these kinds of things out.
The setting concept is only loosely based on reality, but nevertheless...
Kraken Mare is the largest sea on Titan, a surface sea of liquid hydrocarbons (perhaps?). I'm not sure if there's any oxygen on Titan - is there? Would a hydrocarbon sea be inflammable? Is there anything about a 'hydrocarbon sea' that makes it chemically interesting? Any implications for life?
Titan is tidally locked to Saturn, I believe. But does Kraken Mare face toward Saturn, or away from it? What would a day/season cycle look like from this location?
Any help from the Book Club's Space Aces would be much appreciated!
